I have various forms of skin cancer and after having childhoodl eukaemia the C word scares the living daylights out of me. Every spot, every ailment, every illness I think may be cancer coming back and I have a dooming paranoia that I am going to die early from either cancer, or the heart condition my chemotherapy suspectedly caused.
Its not something I will ever get over psychologically and my only hope is that I can live a happy normal life without this coming back with avengeance.
I will be forever removing everything from my skin I can and its starting to disfigure my head with noticeable scars on my scalp.
I just came in here to share my story and am waiting on my next surgery that wont be my last.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
